Large stained glass window made with colored glass slabs whose luminous depth is incomparable. The thickness of each slab varies from 3/4 to 1 inch. Each one is cut with a water saw and carefully adjusted with a sandblaster, according to a pre-established template. The next step is to break the contours of each glass slab with a hammer. This process is essential to give a spectacular effect in front of the light. A cement holds the whole solidly in place and gives an antique look to the whole. A sturdy steel structure was made by Robert Biron using Tig (argon) welding. We chose not to treat the steel structure. This will allow the rust to blend well with the warm colors of the glass slabs.
The technique of stained glass in slabs of glass was developed by the mosaic artist Jean Gaulin and the glassmaker Jules Albernati in 1929 and patented in 1933. The link is almost natural between the stained glass and the glass slab. Several famous artists have explored this technique including Fernand Léger and Marc Chagal.
The work can be installed outside. It will resist to bad weather as well as to frost. The steel structure will rust over time.
